The Commission on Responsible Fatherhood was created by the Welfare Innovation Act of 2001 (Chapter 395, Acts of 2001). Its charge was to make Marylanders aware of the problems that face a child raised without the presence of a responsible father. Obstacles that keep responsible fathers from being involved in their children's lives were to be identified and strategies to encourage responsible fatherhood were to be devised by the Commission.
The Commission last met in September 2002.
